Trying to append to /etc/mail/spamassassin/razor/razor-agent.log, which of course is etc_mail_t. Is there any way to persuade razor to put this log in /var/log instead?
Yep. Done. I made a change in:


Now with a line:

logfile                = /var/log/razor-agent.log

which was just
logfile                = razor-agent.log

Specifying the full path overrides the normal home dir for razor files.

After a spamassassin service restart, the log file is now:

ls -lZ /var/log/razor-agent.log
-rw-r--r--  root root user_u:object_r:var_log_t        /var/log/razor-agent.log

Note the change in context below.
Not sure what to do about this. I would like the file to be created with the right context really. Unfortunately it is a process in the spamd_t domain that is creating this file rather than one in the razor_t domain.

I think I've got to the bottom of this now. I actually installed perl-Razor-Agent myself (I'm using sendmail but that doesn't really matter) to figure out what was happening.

razor, like spamassassin, is written in perl. This allows spamassassin to call razor directly by simply using the razor perl modules rather than the razor client "binaries" in /usr/bin. Thus spamassassin runs a razor client in its own domain, spamd_t. There is in fact no need for a domain transition from spamd_t to razor_t.

Now to get rid of the AVCs. Please update to the policy modules included below. Then:

# mkdir /var/log/spamassassin
# restorecon -v /var/log/spamassassin

Edit /etc/mail/spamassassin/razor/razor-agent.conf and set:

logfile                = /var/log/spamassassin/razor-agent.log

Then restart spamassassin.

Any thoughts on why dccproc might be wanting to read /root/.rh-fontconfig/.fonts.cache-2?

No definitive answer.

Checking the dcc source code tree using grep, the only references to
'font' are in the cgi-bin files (common and common.in) and then in the

I think this is probably a leaked file descriptor. I don't know where the leak is or what to do about it though.
